When you suffer from sciatica, you live with constant tingling and pain, however, if we ignore these symptoms they can worsen until we are left without mobility in the legs and with problems in the internal organs that only surgery can fix. First of all, you should know that the sciatic nerve is of great importance since it is the longest in our body since it begins in the lumbar area and runs through the legs until it ends in the toes, for this reason, it has a lot of nerve ramifications.
Likewise, as it is the nerve that covers the most space in our body, it is normal that inflammation or irritation may occur in different areas, therefore the pain can change depending on the area where the discomfort begins.
